CLEVELAND (WJW) —  Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose visited the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections (BOE) on Saturday and the Summit County BOE on Sunday to discuss the safety and health precautions being taken at the polls ahead of Tuesday’s Presidential Primary.

LaRose says that he has taken aggressive actions to ensure a safe, secure, accurate and healthy election as concerns surround the coronavirus (COVID-19) increase.

Meanwhile, both the Cuyahoga County and Summit County BOE are scrambling to find hundreds more poll workers before Tuesday’s elections.

This week, the BOE was forced to change 39 polling locations due to coronavirus concerns. Some locations combined, while others relocated entirely.

Residents who were impacted will get a notice in the mail.

Training classes are scheduled this weekend for those interested in helping.
